AFRC Commander Lt Gen John Healy recently released his HEALY'S HELPFUL BRIEFING TIPS to assist members when briefing AFRC (or any!) leadership.  This is great information for any member who may be briefing leaders for civilian or military use. 


Ready Airmen Training

Airmen are expected to manage their own readiness training requirements and currencies. The IMA’s Active Component (AC) Unit Deployment Manager (UDM) assists the IMA with scheduling required in-person training. The UDM ensures training is updated in the system of record. It is estimated that an IMA will spend a total of 25 hours over a four-year cycle performing RAT activities, some of which will be part of their normal duty activities. There are three requirements that members must attend in person (CBRN Defense Training, Tactical Casualty Combat Care, and Small Arms Qualification).
